BENEFITING: Global Impact

Sojourn Explorers

THE STORY:

In the past two decades, tens of thousands of men, women, and children – mostly refugees escaping violence, persecution, and hardship – have lost their lives at sea while searching for a better life.

MOAS is proud to have rescued over 30,000 people from the world’s deadliest maritime migration routes.

Established in response to the humanitarian disaster in October 2013, in which some 400 men, women, and children drowned off the island of Lampedusa, MOAS has grown rapidly. Their rescue operations are carried out by professional search and rescue officers, operations specialists, and post-rescue care providers, while a team of skilled professionals in fundraising, communications, and development oversees administration.

Using innovative technology in cooperation with coastal authorities, we provide desperately needed professional search and rescue operations.

In the years since launching, they have worked with multiple partners in several regions, and have seen the devastating consequences of the biggest humanitarian crisis of our era. With disaster relief initiatives needed more than ever, they are calling on the international community to rethink the global migration ‘crisis’ and urgently find sustainable solutions. 

Join the call for #SafeAndLegalRoutes; support this life-saving mission in the Mediterranean Sea.
